Course content

The curriculum has been carefully designed to ensure that there is a balance of theory to application and that there are regular opportunities for you to engage with the world of business. There will be regular guest input from business professionals, case studies and projects in modules that will allow you to apply your knowledge of the theory to a range of real-world business scenarios.

The programme offers opportunities to reflect upon, evaluate and apply key international business management theories and concepts as well as encouraging creative and innovative thinking in the application of relevant management models. As you progress through your studies you will not just be taught academic theory related to the subject, you will also be encouraged and supported to develop skills that will prepare you for developing your career in management, especially related to international business.

  • develop your range of business knowledge and skills pertinent to managing in international businesses together with personal self-awareness and development, based on positive and critical attitudes towards the role of organisations in a dynamic and vibrant international business arena
